    Applying Varnish

    I'm nearing completion of a figure I have spent an enormous amount of time on, Problem is, its a gaming figure so it needs a good coat of varnish, and one thing is for sure I am not using GW purity seal.(my B13 will swear to that )

    I have gotten my hands on on some Army Painter, anti shine matt varnish I've been told yields good results when applied properly.

    My question is, how do I do this?

    I have heard you should apply a layer of gloss varnish first, is that true?
    And the basing of the model before or after?

    I have an army of orks I don't play much with any more who have "volunteered" to test it out, before I use it on Siege.

    But for the sake of the orks please give me some advice. Thanks

    What is a B13?

    I base my models depending on what the piece is either before or after painting the rest of the model, but before the varnish.
    I always use spray varnish, and never use gloss varnish (except on lenses and gems to give them a deliberate shine - and when I do this it's with a brush and goes ON TOP of the matt varnish already applied to the mini).

    Does that help at all?

    By the way - I've never had a problem with purity seal. What IS a B13??? - Outlanders Gaming Club (Rugby, UK) - AA Studios, Commission based painting studios.
